Re: mulch

Am I the only person in the world who doesn't use commercial mulch?  I won't 
say I have never bought mulch - some years ago I invested in a few bags of 
cocoa hulls for a bed that needed more help than I could provide, and I use salt 
hay in the vegetable garden when I can find it.  Other than that I use 
compost, leaves, pine needles and well rotted wood chips the tree man leaves us when 
we have tree work done.  The chips have to rot for two or three years before 
they are good for mulch.  Lots of my neighbors use that awful red stuff - sorry 
if I'm offending anyone but I think it is hideous.  Maybe I'm backward.
